Review: “Rails to Pittsburgh 1945-1970: Steam, Diesel and Electrics in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania”

Walter B. Feibelman “Rails to Pittsburgh 1945-1970: Steam, Diesel and Electrics in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania”

A collection of B&W railroad photography concentrating on the Pittsburgh area, and spanning an era stretching from the later days of steam to the Penn Central – there’s even a little bit of early Conrail! Pittsburgh was home to many railroad operations in its industrial heyday, and in this book we are treated to steam and diesel action from the Pennsylvania Railroad, the Pittsburgh & Lake Erie, Union Railroad, Baltimore & Ohio, and the New York Central. Residents of the “‘Burgh” will no doubt be interested in many of the scenes from Pittsburgh’s past that are no more. And there is coverage of areas that, although not in the immediate Pittsburgh vicinity, are certain to be familiar to any Eastern railfan, such as Horseshoe Curve, electric action in the east, the East Broad Top, and the Strasburg RR.
